Subject: GNAP extensions
Date: Mon, 23 Oct 2006 09:00:04 +0200
Hello guys,

I have some questions about GNAP. I have GNAP, catalyst 2.0 versions,
squashfs-tools 3.0, gcc 4.1.1. A default portage snapshot from gnap
package is very small (1,7MB). I can see there are missing some
packages that I need (hostap-driver, and so on…). Ok. In this case I
have to define extensions in myspecs01 dir:

# List of extensions to build
extensions: less hostap-driver hostap-utils quagga

# hostap-driver extension
hostap-driver/packlist: hostap-driver
#hostap-driver/cleanup: /usr/share

# hostp-utils extension
hostap-utils/packlist: hostap-utils
#hostap-utils/cleanup: /usr/share

# less extension
less/packlist: less
less/cleanup: /usr/share

# quagga extension
quagga/packlist: quagga
quagga/cleanup: /usr/share /etc/quagga/samples /usr/include /usr/lib/perl5
--end of file extensions.conf

Then I tried to do extensions like this:
#gnap_make -t extensions -e less -e hostap-driver -e hostap-utils -e
quagga -p portage-20061006.tar.bz2 -o router05 -e myspecs01 -v

Gnap_make ends with error:
    selected: 0.1.10
   protected: 0.1.13
     omitted: none

How I can solve this portage problem?
Is there any problem I use for GNAP nearly latest portage snapshot
(portage-20061006.tar.bz2 = ~37MB) ?
Should I use some "better" and smaller portage for GNAP?
Where should I find „better" portage snapshot (not big like 37MB)
where hostap-driver, hostap-utils,quagga are included?

Can I do gnap_make –t all with latest portage like this:
gnap_make –t all –p portage-20061017.tar.bz2

Thanks for any info.
